Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "July2008" by ChadWalters
Date Fri, 11 Jul 2008 18:31:49 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by ChadWalters:

    * Increase the size and diversity of the community (or graduate into a Lucene subproject?)
+ === Thrift ===
+ Thrift is a software framework for scalable cross-language services development. Thrift
allows you to define data types and service interfaces in a simple definition file. Taking
that file as input, the compiler generates code to be used to easily build RPC clients and
servers that communicate seamlessly across programming languages.
+ Incubating since May 2008
+ Status:
+  * The SVN repository has been moved to Apache.
+  * Mailing lists and JIRA have been set up.
+  * Have 9 committers (6.5 from Facebook, 2.5 not from Facebook).
+  * Adapted to the JIRA workflow.
+  * Some best practices around use of Git have been developed. Documentation and further
discussion required.
+  * Significant rework of the Ruby bindings completed and committed.
+ Plans:
+  * Improve (wiki) documentation.
+  * Complete a release cycle plan. (What/when/how defines the release of a version?)
+  * Document and elaborate best practices of Git as a contribution tool.  (Background: we
are very happy with the way Git worked for us before incubation, and we want to find a way
to make it continue to work within the Apache Way).
+  * Finish rounding up Software Grant forms.
  === UIMA ===
  UIMA is a component framework for the analysis of unstructured content such as text, audio
and video. UIMA entered incubation on October 3, 2006.
